PURPOSE Our previous study showed that apelin was increased in the vitreous and fibrotic membranes of patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) in vivo, which suggested that apelin may be involved in the development of PDR. In this study, we investigated whether the expression of apelin was upregulated in human retinal pigment epithelial (RPE)(More)
Antimony (Sb) and copper (Cu) are toxic heavy metals that are associated with a wide variety of minerals. Sb(III)-oxidizing bacteria that convert the toxic Sb(III) to the less toxic Sb(V) are potentially useful for environmental Sb bioremediation. A total of 125 culturable Sb(III)/Cu(II)-resistant bacteria from 11 different types of mining soils were(More)
Prolonged hyperglycemia is an important risk factor of the pathogenesis of diabetic retinopathy (DR). Extracellular matrix molecules, such as fibronectin, collagen IV, and laminin, are associated with fibrotic membranes. In this study, we investigated the expression of fibronectin, collagen IV, and laminin in RPE cells under high glucose conditions.(More)
Blue honeysuckle (Lonicera caerulea L.) is an economically important berry because its flavonoid and anthocyanin contents are generally higher than those of other fruits. However, research on anthocyanin accumulation in blue honeysuckle is limited by insufficient genome information. In this paper, Illumina HiSeq™ 2000 platform was used for the transcriptome(More)
—Contraposing to the features of image data with high sparsity of and the problems on determination of clustering numbers, we try to put forward an color image segmentation algorithm, combined with semi-supervised machine learning technology and spectral graph theory. By the research of related theories and methods of spectral clustering algorithms, we(More)
